When: Sun., May 6 2018
Given his long and occasionally controversial career as host of the Tonight Show following the legendary Johnny Carson, it’s easy to forget that Jay Leno was once considered one of the best standup comedians in the country, someone on par with Robin Williams, George Carlin and his former friend/later rival David Letterman. Leno never really stopped doing stand-up, even when he was hosting the most popular late-night show in the world for a couple decades, and since leaving NBC he’s continued doing upwards of 200 shows a year between his headlining spots, USO tours and charity work. Even though he’s only in the Inland Northwest for one day, he’s managing to fit two shows in, so clearly the man still loves the stage, and the laughs.
